International Painting Competition for Children and Youth “near or far, WE are all ONE”
Τhe General Secretariat for Greeks Abroad of the Hellenic Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Children's Art Gallery of Greece in collaboration with the Greek Section of the International Board on Books for Young People - The Greek Children's Book Circle, are organizing an International Student Painting Competition: “near or far, WE are all ONE”, from 10 April to 5 July 2020
Thousands of children abroad, who are out of school due to the restrictive measures taken by countries internationally to prevent the spread of coronavirus, spend their time at home without sharing their friends’ company, but sharing instead a common global reality that shows that near or far we are all one. The competition is an invitation addressed to children of Greeks abroad all over the world to express their feelings, to describe through their art the daily life they are experiencing during this difficult period of humanity, and to display through their artistic creations an auspicious and peaceful future. As the agents of hope and optimism, children are invited to send a universal encouraging message of love, strength and mutual respect.
